Two killed in RV-8 crash
These are the kind of accidents that I find most disturbing. That's an RV-8 that crashed yesterday in Truckee, Calif., killing two people. The wreckage would lead one to believe it's a survivable crash, but as we learned in the Dale Earnhardt crash, it's not what's left, it's how much energy was dissipated and how. A badly damaged plane would signify that the parts absorbed the energy. This plane didn't absorb much energy.
